Who read The Iliad help me please: Which hero do you like best, Achilles
1. Which hero do you like best, Achilles, Hector, or some other? Why? What (if anything) makes Achilles a hero? 2. What are some of the meanings of fate in the epic? (See question 7 above.) 3. Do you think women are depicted sympathetically in the epic? (Andromache, books 6 and 24, Helen, books 3 and 6, Briseis, pp. 382-383.) Given the emotions in the final scenes of the epic, what do you think is Homer’s opinion of the war on Troy?
